juliet: Tiny baby shoot of rhubarb (baby rhubarb!)

Just to get rid of open FF tabs again...

ION: have had a lovely fortnight's holiday in, variously, Northern Ireland, and Boston (Lincolnshire, not the other one); of that latter, more anon. Now I am back in London & surprisingly busy for someone whose work is only full-time in the loosest possible sense (i.e. that sense in which it is the only thing that I am doing in the paid work line, rather than any sense in which I actually work an approximation to what this society considers to be full-time hours. I like it very much this way.). The dog continues to be adorable, time-consuming, and an agent of chaos. And it is spring properly today ftb I wore my sandals to the park. Down with proper shoes! Also the first tiny asparagus shoots are appearing in the allotment.

Thank you. Extremely useful to get a summary set down of what people have against carbon trading.

I haven't time now, but I'll post a point-by-point refutation of their document when I do. I hope you'll read it.

[Right now, I need to get on with my thesis... on what the nature of uncertainty in the physical science of climate change implies for climate change policy...]

OTOH, this way I don't drop nearly a fiver on chocolate, which is quite a lot of money however good the chocolate is.

I should note that it works out better than you might think financially; the chocolate is so rich and intense that you genuinely only want to eat a square or two at most per day.

So a single bar (my preference is for the 82%, holy crap) will last me for several weeks.

I shouldn't tell you that the Algerian Coffee Stores in Soho tells Rococo, should I? That's where I go for my fix.

There's a Rococo store in Belgravia too.

Some branches of Waitrose used to sell one of the Rococo bars, but I'm not sure if they still do.

My MP already opposed the Digital Economy bill and voted against it at both readings. What now?

The powers to cut people off from the Internet and to block websites are still going to require a Statutory Instrument to bring them in during the new Parliament. It's probably worth writing to your MP after the election encouraging them to press for that SI to be given proper scrutiny. You could specifically ask them to try to ensure that their party's representative(s) on the Scrutiny of Statutory Instruments Committee are strong opponents of the Act (as it now is, sadly).
